VILLAGE OF LOWVILLE-December 1, 2019. A 32 year old Lowville man is facing multiple charges following a traffic stop on South State Street in The Village of Lowville early Sunday morning.
Lewis County Sheriffs Deputies arrested Raymond L. White while they were assisting the Lowville Fire Department and Village Police with traffic control during a structure fire. White reportedly approached a deputy who was directing traffic at the intersection of Stowe, River and South State Streets, and after briefly speaking with White, the deputy determined that White was intoxicated. When the deputy attempted to take White into custody after administering field sobriety tests, White began to resist his arrest, subsequently causing an injury to the deputy’s head. White was processed at the Public Safety Building and his blood alcohol content was determined to be .18%, twice the legal limit. White was later released with appearance tickets for Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle, Refusing to take an initial Breath Test, Driving While Intoxicated, Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated, Resisting Arrest, and Harassment in the 2nd Degree. He will answer the charges in the Village of Lowville Court at a later date.
